I setup some environment variables needed by applications in

How to give kde / X11 same env.variables as logged user ?
I asked that question a while ago.
It appears e.g. that xterm uses /etc/profile and konsole does not.
How to change that behavior?
I don't use konsole but it appears this thread might help.
Hot tip. I sourced /etc/profile to .bashrc. I was thinking of doing that
earlier but the thread confirmed it.
